Unique Blog Designs recently released the UDB MoneyMaker Theme, which I promptly installed and modified for my own evil desires. For some strange reason, it really caught my eye and I had to have it.
A quick list of things I hacked:
- Integrated the Ad Rotator plugin to provide a variety of 486×60 banner ads
- Implemented Disqus widgets for the sidebar and Top Commentators
- Added my EntreCard widget right below the UBD Block Ad Plugin
- Added BlogCatalog Widget under Recent Readers
- Added FriendFeed to the sidebar
- Added FriendFeed Comments plugin to the “Single” template
- Hacked the search to work via Lijit (this still needs work, though)
- And integrated the Related Posts plugin
The funny thing here is that I had also decided that this wouldn’t be a Money Maker blog. I mean, how many of those can really succeed? I like money, I like making money, but I also like Social Media and Web 2.0 and those things are much more interesting to talk about for me.
To lay it all out there for you, my faithful reader, I will be blogging mostly about Social Media and Web 2.0 as they relate to self-improvement and increasing quality of life. There will be a focus on organization, motivation, marketing, and home business.
I can never stress enough how important it is to educate yourself, learn to use new tools and do new things. Once you have a base of “book smarts”, there is no telling where imagination can take you, and this is where success flows. I want to help others get there.
